Hi and welcome......
Erm....sorry to say no they're not lotus elan alloys
There were three alloys
For the Elan and SE were ruote oz (15" for Europe and 16" for the USA)
Then the S2 had a BBS 5 spoke...

Lotus used Speedline wheels on the 2.2L Elite, Eclat, Excels & some Esprits so at least 'an approved manufacturer' rather than a 'cheap and nasty' from the local Go-faster shop.

What size are they, and have they got the correct offset? (The offset is shown as "ET" and then a number, usually cast onto them, but sometimes stamped in. Ideally they should be "ET 60" to match the OE wheels, which is 60mm offset.)

Leave me alone, I think I know what I'm doing.
Cars: Subaru Forester 2.5XTN, Eclat Riviera & brace of Pacific Blue SE's.... and now an Elan+2S !
